One of the hardest decisions families have to make if your loved one has not left their specific instructions, is whether to have a burial or a cremation, a Chapel or a Church.  Do you want religion to be part of the service or not at all.  Sometimes your own beliefs and feelings can help make this decision easier.  

At Townsville Cremations, we offer ALL types of services, whether you want to have a full service in a church, a private service in a chapel or a cremation and then a private memorial service in your own backyard.  Nothing is right or wrong, it is your decision.  

Either way, Townsville Cremations will gladly discuss all these options with you and organise everything for you, from the Minister, the flowers, the newspaper notices and any other arrangements that need to be made.

We have a wide range of coffins ranging from MDF to full timber caskets and will always help you tailor your needs and wishes together with your budget.  Our friendly staff will come to you if you wish, our aim is to make this an occasion that is friendly and affordable without adding stress to an already difficult time.
